Liberian model Deddeh Howard is literally changing the face of many iconic ad campaigns that used white women. Howard is putting her own good face to use by recreating ad campaigns that used white models, from campaigns that featured Kate Moss to Kendall Jenner. Howard is using her blog, Secret of DD  to showcase her own work.

From Secret of DD:

Not too long ago it happened to me that I would walk into various fashion model agencies and I would immediately be compared to that one or two black model that they had on the roster. Even though I was told by those agencies that I have an amazing look and wish they could represent me, they already have a black model. Besides having an abundance of white models. It seemed as if one or two black models on the roster are enough to represent us all. When you are told that, trust me, it feels bizarre.

Below are a few of the images from her project appropriately titled the Black Mirror Project:
